The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) vaccinates 1,300 individuals belonging to the A4 category through its Bakuna Center in Light Industry and Science Park 2, Calamba, Laguna last October 27, 2021.
PRC Laguna Chapter, headed by its Chapter Administrator Frank Sorromero, spearheaded the vaccination efforts in Laguna with the assistance of the local government unit. As of October 15, 2021, PRC Laguna Chapter vaccinated 16,255 individuals through its Bakuna Bus and Bakuna Centers.
This initiative is part of the vision of PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon to give the residents of Laguna access to PRC humanitarian services. On the same day, PRC also led the groundbreaking ceremony of the soon-to-build Blood Bank at the City of Sta. Rosa Laguna.
“Inilalapit natin sa mga taga Laguna an gating services upang makatulong sa mga nangangailangan. Ang ating Bakuna Centers at Bakuna Bus ay sinimulan ng Philippine Red Cross upang mabilis natin mabakunahan ang mas maraming tao at marating ang mga walang access dito. Pinangunahan din natin ang groundbreaking ceremony ng bagong PRC Blood Bank sa Sta. Rosa para mabigyan ng mas mabilis na access ang mga taga Sta. Rosa, Binan, San Pedro, at lahat na ngangailangan ng dugo,” Sen. Dick Gordon said.
PRC Laguna Chapter will continue to be of service to the most vulnerable people in Laguna, abiding by its mantra to be always first, always ready, and always there where help is needed.
